1794 Meetinghouse

Quabbin Valley Pro Musica (QVPM) is a community chorus based in New Salem, MA. Geoff Hudson is the Music Director; Judy Johnson is the Collaborative Pianist. New singers are always welcome to join, particularly at the start of each season (February and September). The material is primarily drawn from classical choral works; modern compositions and folk or world music are occasionally included as well.

2022 Fall Season; New Members are Welcome to Join Us
After a 2-1/2 year break, QVPM is restarting up this fall with a short season from the first rehearsal on Monday, September 12 to the concert on Sunday, December 4th. If you are interested in joining please contact Geoff Hudson at hudsongs@earthlink.net.

Rehearsal & Concert Dates & Times
Rehearsals are on Mondays from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in New Salem and will initially be held in 1794 Meetinghouse itself before moving a couple of doors down to the New Salem Central Congregational Church when the weather gets colder. The concert at the end of the season is scheduled for the 3:00 pm on Sunday, December 4th at the Orange Central Congregational Church.

Current Chorus Covid Requirements
Everyone at QVPM rehearsals must be fully vaccinated (including at least one booster for adults); please bring proof of vaccination to your first rehearsal. Masks will be worn for rehearsals and the performance. Everyone will stand further apart than usual, with windows open as much as possible to maximize ventilation, and there will be a longer break in the middle of rehearsals. All members are asked to stay home if they’ve been exposed to someone with Covid or are feeling anything that might be construed as Covid symptoms.

QVPM Dues are $80 per person per session. This is a sliding scale; please pay what you can. The dues should not be a barrier to participation; come and sing with us regardless of what you pay. Some people are able to pay more; it will work itself out. The most important thing is: if you want to sing, we welcome you to join us!
